This study was done to compare the efficacy of postoperative antibiotic therapy in patients undergoing appendicectomy in non-perforated appendicitis. We conducted appendicectomy both laparoscopic and open method in 102 cases of non-perforated appendicitis. Most of our cases [91] were between the age of 18 to 25 years. Youngest was 15 years and oldest was 45 years, with male predominance. The study was conducted during the period 2012 to 2015. We compared the results between the two groups of patients one group received postoperative antibiotic & other group did not. Our results denote that there is no much difference between the two groups as far as wound site infection and hospital stay is concerned.
